When it comes to skeletonized, or open-heart, watches, I have become more than a little jaded.
While we tend to get drawn towards the new hotness when it comes to watches – whether it’s new models, new lines, or even new brands, that’s not to say that there is anything wrong with the established stuff that came before. I mean, this is all but evidenced by the number of “heritage” or re-release models that we’ve seen
Just a few years ago, I had my first experience with a Polar product . In the time since then, I’ve used it, alternating with the Garmin that’s also in my workout watch stable. A lot can change for a brand in a few years, so we reached out to the brand, and got a few more items in for review.

At the time, financially I wasn’t in a position to spend $500 on a watch, and so it remained just out of reach
It was just about a year ago that we told you about the Axiom 26 Bleu Horizon, which was an addition to the successful crowd-funding project that Axiom had undertaken ( and we wrote about here ).

Clodd watches are a making a slight twist on the understated casual dress watch, and their kickstarter is coming to a close. If you’d like to get in while you still can, now is the time
